Yes I also think the TC should work towards election using Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) both for efficiency (instant runoffs) and fairness (most election experts consider RCV more fair when there are 3 or more candidates). See https://www.fairvote.or­g/rcv#where_is_ranked_ch­oice_voting_used

Yes Agree that Ranked Choice Voting should be used for positions where more than one candidate has been nominated.

Local government elections do have positions for which there are no nominations other than the encumbent. The vote in that case is "for continuance in office (Y/N)".
